2 Hour Challenge - ft. R.L.C.
R.L.C. were given two hours to write, practice and record a new song.
When prompted, select either ‘Music Video’ to hear the finished song or ‘Documentary’ for the making of.
The complexity of the edit tough but also incredibly fun. With the video intended to work in both ways (whether it is as a ‘making of’, following the band as they have the restriction of 2 hours to write, practice and record a new song, or as a music video with the final track) the edit was a constant battle between diegetic sounds and the completed song. I had previously almost resigned to releasing the video twice, once as the documentary and the other time as a music video, but luckily I stuck out till I could find a suitable platform. Interlude is exactly that. Giving the audience the ability to participate with the video and play with the edit themselves, flicking between the sound, I think it introduces a whole new concept of what it is to be a viewer.
